Perreault, Scheifele & Laine lead Jets to victory

Trio combines for five points; Hellebuyck stops 32 in 3-2 win

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

OTTAWA, ON - From the moment Mathieu Perreault was put on the top line with Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine, a lot of good things have happened for the Winnipeg Jets offensively.

With points in each of his last three, Perreault has rediscovered his touch around the net, Scheifele has had three multi-point efforts, and Laine - the sharp-shooting wunderkind - has had his pursuit of the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie kick into overdrive.

Most importantly, these three were a big reason the team picked up a second straight win, and third in the past four games, on Sunday in Ottawa.

OTTAWA, ON - Halfway through a four-game Eastern Conference road trip, and with three of a possible four points in their pocket, the Winnipeg Jets fly into Ottawa looking for more.

It will be the eleventh time this season that the Jets will play on back-to-back days, but the Senators will be in the same boat, having played last night in Toronto.

The Jets (27-29-5) are coming off a 3-1 win in Montreal, a victory that sent Canadiens fans home disappointed after Claude Julien's debut behind the bench.

"We were prepared for a real heavy push early. We got out of the gate and kept it quiet for the most part," said head coach Paul Maurice. "There weren't any flurries around our net, which is where the building is able to get going. Anything that gets close to your goal, it gets loud in here. We did a good job of not allowing zone time where they get rolling around. They feed off that. All teams do."

The win was also the third straight game the Jets have picked up at least a point in the standings, going 2-0-1 in that span. The overtime loss came in Pittsburgh back on Thursday, but captain Blake Wheeler says that was also when a more physical Jets team emerged.

MONTREAL, QC - If Paul Maurice and the Winnipeg Jets could bottle the effort they've put in, and the surgical precision with which they've executed over the past three nights - culminating in a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday afternoon - they'd take it today, tomorrow and 82 times a year.  

"The players understand that you're going to lose games, but it's about (not) losing confidence," Maurice said following the game at the Bell Centre. "When we left that [Pittsburgh] game, you don't lose a thing. You feel terrible because you put a lot into it, but they didn't walk away playing any less confident - probably even more confident because even in an overtime loss, they were walking out of there saying 'That's what we're capable of doing on a nightly basis and that's our challenge.'"

Challenge accepted.

Unlike the Pittsburgh game, the Jets got the full two points they deserved this time around.

MONTREAL, QC - While it wasn't the result he or the team were looking for, Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice was proud of what he saw from his players in last night's 4-3 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"We played one hell of a hockey game," Maurice said. "The compete was so high, the checks got finished, the battle on pucks was real good, lots of chances to score, and good goaltending kept you from scoring… It was a really hard fought game."

Things don't get any easier for the Jets, who take on the Atlantic Division leading Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre Saturday afternoon on Hockey Day in Canada.

The Canadiens will be a motivated team coming off their bye week. Saturday's contest will be the first for Claude Julien behind the Habs bench after being hired by the club on Feb. 14.

PITTSBURGH, PA - The Winnipeg Jets had to be at their best to have a chance against the defending Stanley Cup champions. On a night when history could be made, like it was Thursday at PPG Paints Arena, even more so.

It took a while to get going, but once the engines fired and purred at full song, the Jets, according to their head coach and everyone else who witnessed it live and on TV, "played one hell of a hockey game."

Backed by the 44 saves of goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and Sidney Crosby's winning goal with only 21.1 seconds left in overtime, the Penguins took a 4-3 decision in a thrilling, back-and-forth, physical affair in downtown Pittsburgh.

"The compete was so high, the checks got finished, the battle on pucks was real good," said Maurice. "There were lots of chances to score, and good goaltending kept (us) from scoring. We'll think about the chances in overtime, for sure, but real good battle. It was a really hard-fought game.

"It's that time of year."
